'Breaking Bad' star joins FOX's Ashley Dvorkin to discuss the film's inspirational journey; 'Triumph' is set to hit Cinemark Theatres April 30 and available on-demand June 15.

The 29-year-old actor, who also has cerebral palsy, takes on a moving role in the film "Triumph," an inspiring real-life story of a high school senior with cerebral palsy who has dreams of becoming a wrestler.

Mitte spoke with Fox News about his new film and how he hopes Hollywood continues to be more inclusive.

"I try to find projects that are relevant [and] have the inspirational aspect," he explained. "At the same time, [I hope] people can watch and enjoy and potentially when you see a film like this, you're going to change your view on how you view people with disabilities and how you view not just other people, but your own self. So for me, that's a key factor in every [project] I pick."
